Walk at Capitol makes strides for cancer awareness
Sacramento Bee

Kelly Pfeiffer, 52, of Sacramento was looking for a particular friend in the crowd gathered in front of the west Capitol steps Sunday morning.

“I’m doing this for my friend, Jeannie Valdez,” said Pfeiffer, pointing to the inscription on the back of her pink T-shirt. It read: “In support of Jeannie.”

“She was diagnosed with breast cancer last year,” Valdez said. “She went into remission, but she has to go into surgery next Tuesday to have her ovaries removed.”
